Repsol Honda's 2013 MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez Wraps Season with Fastest Test Times at Valencia, Pedrosa 4th Fastest

MotoGP   Valencia - Testing

Marquez finishes season on top
 MotoGP in 2013 has come to an end with World Champion Marc Marquez the fastest on the final day in Valencia. Marc’s lap time of 1'30.287, taken on lap 54 of 56, is just 0.05s off his record breaking pole position lap from last weekend (1'30.237). Teammate Dani Pedrosa was 4th on this final day’s testing with a time of 1'30.992 on lap 32 of 70.

It was a productive final day for the Repsol Honda riders and the HRC technicians will now collate all the data to take back to Japan. There is now an enforced Winter test period ban, and the bikes will next be back on track in Sepang on 4th February 2014.

Marc Marquez   1st   1'30.287
“I am very happy with how the day went and thanks to all my team for their hard work! We continued our testing and today we focused on just the one bike: the prototype with which we felt best yesterday. We tried out different electronic configurations and various setups, and we are pretty satisfied with the results. The most important thing is that we have gathered a lot of data during these two days, so that Honda will be able to work over the winter and give us some updates at the next test in Malaysia”

Dani Pedrosa   4th   1'30.992
“Today we were lucky with the weather, because it seemed as if it was going to rain but eventually it stayed dry. That allowed us to put in more laps and continue analysing the new bike, making a few changes. Yesterday we got a big head start with our workload for this test, so today we didn't try so many new things. We simply carried on adapting as well as possible to the bike. In any case, we are happy with what we have done and now it’s time for us and the whole team - who I thank for all their work in 2013 - to rest!”
